Anti-ageing, skin tightening, smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.


Technology explained

3D-RF Face & Body penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblast in order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.


What areas can be improved with 3D-RF Face & Body?

3D-RF Face & Body targets anti-ageing for the face and body and can treat the forehead, ‘crow’s feet’, upper lip, jowls and neck area, as well as areas of the body such as the abdomen and arms. Your therapist will assess your areas of concern to devise a tailored treatment plan to target those areas.


How many treatments are recommended?

A course of treatment is typically advised to achieve maximum results. This is usually 6 – 8 treatments, one treatment per week for 6 – 8 weeks.


What results can I expect from this treatment?

As collagen increases, the dermis becomes thicker and the skin naturally tightens and becomes firmer. This can create a smoother, healthier and younger looking appearance. In some clients, an improvement in skin tone can be visible after the first treatment. This is largely down to the heat stimulating the treated area creating a plumping and tightening effect – this is a temporary result. Real results from the treatment normally start to appear after 4 treatments but this can vary among individual clients. This is because it takes a few weeks for the body to start to regenerate collagen. Results develop over the course of the treatment as collagen production is stimulated.


Can I combine 3D-RF Face & Body with other treatments?

3D-RF Face & Body is a standalone treatment and can also be combined with other treatments to provide you with a bespoke facial depending on your skin.


What will I experience during treatment?

3D-RF Face & Body is a relaxing treatment. Glycerine will be applied to the skin, this acts as a conductor for the 3D-RF Face & Body energy. A small, round handpiece will be placed onto the skin and moved in gentle circular motions. A slight beeping noise will come from the machine, the handpiece will get warmer and warmer, heat building until it reaches 40 degrees. Your therapist will use an infrared thermometer to measure the heat of the skin. Once the temperature has built up to 40 degrees, your therapist will continue to maintain the heat, continuing treatment on the area for 2 – 4 minutes, before moving onto the next area.
